Day 3 Of NaNoWriMo and still going pretty strong...not in word count, but in the fact that I am still writing every day. Besides, today was a particularly busy day. I worked, had two meetings, did one of my friend's hair, went shopping, got a call that another friend had a siezure (she's doing great though), ran home, helped take care of friend's dogs while her and her family were at the hospital, saw them when they came home, all safe, went to other friend's (hair friend) for dinner, watched a movie, came home, wrote!!! Busy, busy, busy!!! Anyway, hoping everyone the best, especially in their writing! Here's my continuation...Still in chapter one!
